Nehemiah 6-11

The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)

6:18 - Many in Judah were bound to Tobiah because he was the son-in-law of Shecaniah son of Arah; and his son Jehohanan had married the daughter of Meshullam son if Berechiah.

7:67 - The exiles that had been carried out by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon returned with their seven thousand three hundred and thirty-seven male and female slaves and two hundred forty-five singers, male and female.

8:2-3 - The priest Ezra brought the law before the assembly, both men and women and all who could hear with understanding. He read it facing the square before the Water Gate from early morning until midday, in the presence of the men and women and those who could understand; and the ears of the people were attentive to the book of the law.

Nehemiah 9 - No mention of any women.

10:28-31 - The rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the temple servants and all who have separated themselves from the people of the land to adhere to the law of God, their wives, their sons, their daughters, all who have knowledge and understanding, join with their kin, their nobles, and enter into a curse and an oath to walk in God's law. They will not give their daughters to the people of the land or take their daughters for their sons, they will not purchase merchandise or grain from the peoples of the land on the Sabbath, and they will forgo the crops of the seventh year and the exaction of every debt.

Nehemiah 11 - No mention of any women.

My Comments

And more examples of how foreign people are bad and only the people of God can be trusted. Hurray for xenophobia.
